Welcome to WJS Year 3! There are lots of exciting projects and challenges for you and I hope you will have a huge amount of fun learning lots of new skills!
In Class KR we are very lucky that Mrs Blackburn will be working with us every morning and Mrs Lofthouse will also be working across Year 3 in the afternoons!
Miss Rowell is one of the Year 3 teachers. She is in charge of leading PE for the school and is very excited to be taking children to various sporting competitions throughout the year, including girls football and High 5 Netball.
In her spare time Miss Rowell loves to go to the gym and play sport, particularly netball. She enjoys travelling, especially to sunny places!
Make sure you come and say hello!
What we are learning about...
Spring 1- Passion for Trashion
This half term we are moving on to Passion for Trashion, where we will learn all about recycling and become designers, creating outfits out of recycled materias. Once created, we will be putting on our very own Trashion Show to show off all our fabulous designs. This will be held on the 10th February.
What else have we got to look forward to?
Well...... our focus this term will be on Design and Technology. We will investigate properties of materials, then use this knowledge to design our outfits and create them with the help of parents (look out for your invite to our creative day held on the 3rd February).
Along with music with Mr Sills, we will be composing our own music using the Garage Band! You may even get a taster of this during the Trashion Show.
Our science this term allows us to investigate electricity, finding out where it comes from and creating our own circuits. Maybe we have some budding electricians in the making!
In English we will be focusing on the author Colin Thompson. We will also be improving our letter writing skills.
We can't wait for this half term and are looking forward to working alongside parents/carers to help make this topic a HUGE success!
Indoor: Navy/Black shorts, white T-shirt and plimsols.
Outdoor: Navy/Black jogging bottoms, white T-Shirt, Navy/Black jumper, Trainers.
PE is on Mondays and Wednesdays so please make sure you bring the correct kit to school. Girls, you will need to tie long hair back and remove earrings. We will hopefully be going outside this half term if the weather allows so please have an outdoor kit too.
Homework consists of maths, topic and spellings and needs to be handed in on Mondays. Spellings will be set on a Tuesday and tested the following week. Your Topic and Maths homework is set on a Thursday. I would also suggest you try and read as much as you can at home, I would love to hear all about the books you have been reading.
